A Great Trade Paperback: BATMAN ‘66 MEETS THE GREEN HORNET

If you're a fan of the Batman TV series from 1966 to 1968 as I am, you'll love this trade paperback that brings together the Adam West Batman with the Green Hornet (of his own 1960s TV series),"Batman '66 Meets the Green Hornet."
   In 1967, television history was made when two masked crime fighters met in a historic crossover. Now, superstar filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor/comedian Ralph Garman join forces with artist Ty Templeton (BATMAN ’66) to bring these two iconic characters and their famous partners together again. 
   The trade paperback brings together the individual issues #1-6 of this team up, and the artwork is incredible!  The artists really draw the characters as the actors portrayed them in television. 
   Highly recommended !! - Rob

ABOUT THE STORY: Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm. What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve?

Here's a look at an inside chapter cover with the Joker, drawn exactly to look like Cesar Romero, the actor who portrayed him on television. Just amazing artwork! 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
